Environmental Issues Associated With New Reactors and Specific Environmental Guidance for Integral Pressurized Water Reactors Reviews
On September 13, 2013, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a request for public comment on draft Interim Staff Guidance (ISG) ESP/COL-ISG 026, ``Interim Staff Guidance on Environmental Issues Associated with New Reactors'' and draft ISG ESP/ COL-ISG-027, ``Interim Staff Guidance on Specific Environmental Guidance for iPWR Reviews.'' The purpose of this ISG is to clarify the NRC guidance and application of NUREG-1555, Environmental Standard Review Plan: ``Standard Review Plans for Environmental Reviews for Nuclear Power Plants.'' The public comment period was originally scheduled to close on October 15, 2013. The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) submitted a letter on September 17, 2013 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML13268A343), requesting an extension of the public comment period until November 15, 2013, on these two guidance documents. The NRC has decided to re-open the public comment period on these two ISG documents to allow more time for members of the public to assemble and submit their comments.
